I see certain posters here DON'T support Freedom of Religion - but only Freedom of Certain Religions. A set of first stepping stones on the path to tyranny and oppression.

Yup, pretty clear. Freedom of "my preferred religion" is not, in fact, freedom of religion.

A fairly common position amongst modern political thought. People who adhere to a more left-wing ideology tend to be more anti-Christian while those towards the right tend to be more anti-Muslim. In both cases, this tends to lead to support for legislation/government actions which infringe upon the religious beliefs of those groups.

Also, modern military propaganda muddies the waters of any reason or sensibility, too...

This does help explain the sentiments towards Muslims because, from a purely ideological lens, right wing (specifically socially right wing) ideologies should have more in-common with the typical Muslim voter than socially liberal ideologies. But fear is a powerful tool that has especially been used post-9/11
